Former NFL player sends out iPads as wedding invitations!

Former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson (pictured above with fiancee) sent out the best wedding invitations ever - iPad 4s - each pre-programmed with all of the 411 for his big day, TMZ reports.
"It's pretty badass. Here's what we know. The iPads were sent to several guests a few weeks ago -- and once they're powered on, a program opens informing the recipients about Key's wedding events. 
Also included -- a photo gallery, guestbook, and countdown to the big day. The couple also made it easy for guests to buy wedding gifts -- by including the registry right on the iPad. 
Of course, the woman Keyshawn is set to marry is Jennifer Conrad -- his longtime GF and the mother of 2 of his children."

Mum of suspected bomber who disguised as a woman says he's not a terrorist

On Friday July 25th, the Nigerian military released a statement saying they'd arrested a man dressed as a woman who is suspected to be connected with the Wednesday 23rd bomb blast targeted at former Head of state, General Buhari. (read here)

Well, the suspect's mother Zubeida Yusuf, who lives in Mando, Kaduna has spoken and she says her son, Mansir Yusuf, is no terrorist. She said the military mistook her son for a terrorist because he was found wearing female clothes;
“My son is not a terrorist. What is wrong with him is an evil spiritual attack which is making him to prefer women’s clothing and to act as one who is mentally retarded. Everyone in Mando knows that he only has a spiritual condition that is making him to act strangely.
“He often dresses normal from home, but whenever he gets to an uncompleted building, he would go in and change to the female clothes. He usually carries his bag. He has been taken to the Village Head several times and has been flogged in the hope to cast away the spirits, but the spirits have remained and have continued to torment him,” Zubeida told Daily Trust.

Police explains rise in female suicide bombings in Nigeria

The Nigeria Police Force spokesperson Frank Mba has given an insight into the recent rise of female suicide bombers in Nigeria.

Addressing newsmen at the National Information Center yesterday, Mr Mba said Boko Haram men now use women because they raise fewer suspicions.
"If you have been following the trends of terrorism worldwide, you will understand that use of female suicide bombers is actually not totally new. It is actually a new trend in our own part of the world. The reasons why established international terrorist organizations go for female suicide bombers is clear. The major reason is that women raise fewer suspicions, particularly with security layers, and so they take advantage of the fact that women raise fewer suspicion to try to indoctrinate and recruit female suicide bombers. The suspicion even becomes much lesser if the woman in question is a minor and that explains why. In addition to that is the fact that by rules of engagement that we are cultured to, male security operatives are not allowed to frisk or search females but we are equally developing counter terrorism strategies to deal with that.” he said

No matter how rich you are, should there be a limit to how much you spend on your young children?

Listen I love designer items, but even I have a limit. Unfortunately I can't share the pics because its from very private individuals but I saw a pic of a 13 year old Nigerian girl wearing a $3,500 designer dress. I heard she has plenty of those, even a dress as expensive as $5,600. One of her watches is a $21,000 Rolex. Her father is extremely wealthy, even owns a private jet, so it makes sense that he wants to spoil his little girl BUT...shouldn't there be a limit, especially if they are that young?

Take for instance, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather's 14 year old daughter, Iyanna, she can't drive yet but she has a Mercedes Benz s550 and G550 (pictured above). She has Hermes bags, diamond watches and a lot of stuff many of her followers describe as obscene for a girl that young.

So what do you think? No matter how wealthy you are as a parent, should there be a limit to how much you spend on your young children? Let's discuss...

"On July 22nd at about midnight, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Special duties who has been coordinating the visit from the side of the presidency visited the hotel and told the 51 escaped girls who came that the Presidency sent them a token of a N100, 000 each and accordingly gave them the said money without even a prior knowledge or discussion of any other person in the community that was around the vicinity of the hotel. The Senior special assistant equally gave the sum of N200,000 each to 61 parents out of the 122 that came on the visit. 61 parents were given N100,000 each on the basis that the money given to them was not enough to go round at the agreed amount of N200,000 each.
